I'm sorry to everyone that this is long, but if you answer, then I will appreciate it. THANKS!
First off, welcome to Head-Fi. Second off... Skip the Beats if you are looking for anything that sounds good... Or is durable... Or is comfortable for long periods of listening. This is just my opinion by the way.
Anyway, sound wise, Beats are very bass heavy, which can take away from the mids and highs, making the track sound muddy. Personally, I have never recommended anything on your list to anyone before. Sorry. HOWEVER, I do have a very healthy (and somewhat less expensive) alternative.
Numark Red Wave, $70. Has as much bass as the Solo HD and the Tour. These are built like a tank, you can bend them and stretch them as much as you want, but they just won't break. They are over the ear, and a bit on the larger side, but they do fold up to the size a bit bigger than a softball for easy travel. They are comfortable for up to 3 hours at a time. AND, they look great. Plus, I get more comments on them than my Beats when I'm in public. They definitely are attention grabbers.
If all you want is bass, I'd recommend purchasing a portable amplifier, such as the FiiO E7. Basically, it will make the bass of your headphones sound like it's coming from a 15 inch car subwoofer. The E7 can make more bass from the Red Waves than the Studios can produce. That's how much bass. So, for less than $200, my personal choice would be the Numark Red Wave + FiiO E7.
Anyway, let me know your thoughts, and PM me if you have any further questions, I'd be happy to answer! :)
